Assange TV Launches with Interview of Hizballah Chief
Via Radio Free Europe:
The mystery first guest on the new television talk show hosted by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was Hizballah chief Hassan Nasrallah.
Assange said it was Nasrallah’s first interview with Western media since 2006.
“I want to know: why is he called a freedom fighter by millions and at the same time a terrorist by millions of others?” Assange said.
“This is his first interview in the West since the 2006 Israel-Lebanon war. His party, Hizballah, is a member of the Lebanese government.”
Nasrallah, who is considered a terrorist by Israel and the United States, spoke via computer link from Beirut in the interview.
The episode can be watched on the Russian-backed, English-language RT news channel.
